Customer Rating
Johnnie Walker Red Label was launched in its current form by brothers George and Alexander Walker in 1909, though it had existed as Walker's Special Old Highland Red Label for some years previously. Alexander blended a type of whisky which is more suited to mixing with soda than the heavier, more old-fashioned whiskies, and named it after his grandfather, who had started the family business in 1820. Today it is the world's most popular whisky and is sold in more than 200 markets world-wide.

Johnnie Walker Red Label Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy A

    Nose: Sour apple, toffee and light spice. Hints of vanilla sponge and caraway.

    Palate: Soft and gentle, with sweet grain, sour apple, vanilla cream and white pepper. Caramel and toffee sweetness develops.

    Finish: Short and sweet, with growing apple skin tannin and a touch of fruit.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Nose: Hints of fresh apple, pear and the spark of zest from the elegant Speyside malts. 

    Palate: Fruity sweetness, cinnamon and pepper crackling on the centre of your tongue.

    Finish: A sophisticated, smoky finish - the signature of all Johnnie Walker blends.

    I used to think this was not good. I came back to it and really like it. Neat. Really like it.

    I bought a bottle of this. This was horrible. It tasted like something foreign was added. I tried to complain about this on their web site in the "contact" page, but the form is buggy and would not let me submit the form with the complaint. I wouldn't recommend this stuff to anyone

    Red label: you can't compare this with the others in the JW stable, would be unfair. Would be a good introduction for anyone not too sure about smoke as it come through faintly. That said, for the price it's a fantastic daily driver, which is what I use it for.

    For the price, this is an excellent Scotch. My go-to JW is Green Label, but I like this now and then. It also mixes well and makes a nice Rob Roy, if you are into cocktails. I also keep three or four single malts in my bar. As for some of the comments about American whiskey, I can't figure it out. We have some nice whiskeys and bourbons here that stand up well to various whiskeys made around the world. Jim Beam Black, Maker's 46, Knob Creek, Weller's and Buffalo Trace, among others, make some excellent whiskeys and bourbons, as do the Canadians. I prefer Scotch, but I keep plenty of the other whiskeys around for my guests who have a different preference. I give Red a four star rating because we are comparing it to others in its price range, like Dewar's White Label, which is OK, also. If you compare it to the higher end JW's and single malts, you are doing it a disservice.

    Not a bad scotch but J&B and Famous Grouse is much, much better as far as your basic scotch goes.

    Seriously do not understand how some people say this is trash.. this is a damn good dram! Wow man.. I have to say this is the best cheap whisky I've ever had! Personally I wouldn't mix it with anything. It's good the way it is but to each their own make it the way you like. Completely love that signature Johnnie taste. My mind is blown I was expecting this to be bad because of what other people were saying... IT'S NOT. It's a good, solid bargain whisky to have on your bar. Period.

    Enjoying now, perhaps better than black label imo, as someone else below said soft...but with a smoky palate with toffee/buttery and citrus. Lovely

    Amazed! I always thought this was a bad whisky.. amazing price value.. i diluted it a little with evian water and was amazed with the intensity of apple, toffee aromas and the complexity in the mouth.. I will feel guilty when ever i want to buy a more expensive option, as their is no need for it.

    Sampled it with “Bitter Lemon” at Cape Coral Arts Festival. It was delicious But I have been to a liquor store and a grocery store and cannot find that “bitter lemon” they never heard of it. Where can I find it?

    Great for mixing with Pepsi Max or Coke Zero. Not bad for shots either. I absolutely love this whiskey.

    A fine and consistent blend. You can't go wrong with Red Label.

    I’ve never got the whole single malt scene. My taste has always been more towards blended. You can regularly pick this up for very little, at which point, I’d say it’s unbeatable. I drink cheaper blends by freezing an inch of water in my favourite tumbler then pouring on. You need the lower temperature for this blend imo. I know it’s not the best dram ever made but I drink a bottle of this a week in average and while I love to try all sorts I always end up coming back to Red Label. Cheers.
